I have a sharepoint list and I want to set some value inside it. The multi-choice field is already defined and it is already pointing on data. I just want to pick one of the choices and set it in the field. I don't want to create new values and adding them inside.

    $weburl = "http://sdfsdfsdf"
    $web = Get-SPWeb $webUrl

    $choice = # what do i have to put here ?

    $newItem = $list.AddItem()
    $newItem["multiChoiceField"] = $choice
  • have you had any luck on this, currently trying to figure out the same – Brent Ellis Mar 19 '15 at 18:27

from msdn:

$choicevalues = New-Object Microsoft.SharePoint.SPFieldMultiChoiceValue;
$i["multiplechoicefield"] = $l.Fields["multiplechoicefield"].ParseAndSetValue($i,$choicevalues);            
$i["multiplechoicefield"] = $choicevalues;

    Thank you for your answer. I already have seen this piece of code and it didn't fixed my problem. Plus, as I said I don't want to create new values because they already exist. – ameliapond Feb 26 '15 at 16:30

May have stumbled upon it, in Powershell, I have an actual array variable of values

$languages = Eng,Fr,Sp

I set my field to equal this array:

$NewItem["TestLanguages"] = $languages

Spent forever trying to do what was listed above as well, but this is working for me (and so simple too)
